Update: Since the start of “New Music Friday” at midnight ET, GOJIRA’s “Fortitude” and Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music’s “Old Church Basement” have each spent time at #1 on the all-genre US iTunes sales chart.

“Fortitude” leads the way as of press time at 1:20AM ET, with “Old Church Basement” now at #2.

Thomas Rhett’s new “Country Again (Side A)” (#3), Adam Calhoun & Struggle Jennings’ new “Outlaw Shxt” (#4), and MercyMe’s “inhale (exhale)” (#5) are also charting prominently.

The iTunes chart tends to be very volatile on “New Music Friday,” so any of the aforementioned positions could change in the coming minutes and hours.

Shortly after the midnight start of the April 30-May 6 music sales tracking period, GOJIRA’s new “Fortitude” reached #1 on the all-genre US iTunes sales chart.

As of 1:10AM ET, another album rules the listing.

The chart’s #1 position now belongs to Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music’s “Old Church Basement.” The GOJIRA album is still impressively positioned at #2.

Eric Church’s holdover hit “Soul” follows at #3, while Adam Calhoun & Struggle Jennings’ new “Outlaw Shxt” occupies the #4 position. MercyMe’s new “inhale (exhale)” sits at #5 on the listing.

New releases just below the Top 5 include Royal Blood’s “Typhoons” (#6), Dropkick Murphys’ “Turn Up That Dial” (#7), DJ Khaled’s “Khaled Khaled” (#9), and Manchester Orchestra’s “The Million Masks Of God” (#10).
